    Be interesting to see what an insurance company would say in the vent of a collision.
    It's not a case of not liking, I have seen HUD in aircraft and it can be very good, the question is the legality.

    Personally I can see the advantage of having one fitted so the display is on the passengers side i.e. the driving instructors, but I must agree with @wammers and @Datatek . So make that three old buggers ;):D.

    I am pleased I have caused so much interest, but opinions are like a******s everyone has one. And the display is on the drivers side not passenger.

    Yes but an HUD in an aircraft is quite different there is nothing like as many things to run into at 25,000 feet.

    no argument there but a slight deviation at mach 2 is probably similar to swerving at 40mph

    You don't make large deviations at Mach 2 unless you want to be on a parachute with bits falling down beside you. :D

    I'd wager that if the P38 (or L322) was fitted with HUD from the factory then this conversation wouldn't exist.

    :D:D


    (Removing air bags, now there's a topic for debate:eek:)

    Ahh, but wammers would have a how-to in technical and Data would have a cable or something to mend it.

    It'd be grand.;)

    It will be yet another reason why 'modern' cars get scrapped when some electrical item that the manufacturer thinks we can't live without goes tits up.
